Abstract
This study involved a review of bonding and bond release practices in the states of the eastern and midwestern coal provinces. Data was collected from regulatory authorities and site visits to document the bonding and release procedures in the states related to achieving successful reclamation. The regulations related to public law 95-87 were reviewed. The analysis included suggested modified or new bond release criteria based on a review of applicable bond release inspection techniques, a conceptual graduated bonding system, and incentive procedures for reclamation of surface mine sites to alternative or higher land uses. Conclusions and recommendations for further research, a detailed bibliography, and a glossary are included in the report.
